"With this sordid background in mind, the University of New South Wales has now reported a 2000% increase in cheating:
The number of students found to be cheating in assessments and exams increased by about 2000 per cent at the University of NSW when it moved resources from deterring cheating to detecting it…
“We’ve gone from a detection rate of almost nothing to quite a substantial detection rate,” Cath Ellis, UNSW’s associate dean of education in the faculty of arts and social sciences, said.
“All of us inside and outside the sector have been putting our efforts [into] deterrence … but we’ve found that assessment design cannot prevent contract cheating; you can’t design it out…
Associate Professor Ellis said the actual proportion of students who cheat could be as high as 12 per cent…
“We’ve got a serious new issue here of contract cheating,” Mr Thorley said."

Worse I saw on one documentary about it, that this local ozy guy was been held back because most of his group were foreign students with a bad level of English so he was ending up having to explain and do everything because they couldn’t understand. So it’s starting to affect local yen students directly as well."
